May 4, 2013, 3:30 PM
E.E. Bass Front Lawn (Rain location Jake and Freda Stein Hall)
The Quebe Sisters return to Greenville to show off there great fiddle skills. When Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe (pronounced Kway-bee) raise their fiddles and play, audiences marvel.  When the girls sing their vintage style three-part harmony, audiences are blown away.  Add the extraordinary rhythm guitar of Joey McKenzie and the swinging upright bass of Drew Phelps and the Quebe Sisters Band becomes a force of nature.  The QSB’s unique brand of music has taken the Americana music scene by storm.  They perform a refreshing blend of western swing, vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling. Concert is free to the public-all donations will go to support DSA.
